{Christmas Eve Tradition}

{Christmas Eve Tradition}

I’ve always loved Christmas time.  If I could start decorating before Thanksgiving, I’d totally be one of those people.  Ever since having a child, this time of year just seems that much better…especially this year, when he’s starting to actually be excited by the lights, seeing Santa, Christmas music, the deal.

I’m most excited for starting family traditions of our own.

Last year we started a Christmas Eve tradition by getting him a pair of new Christmas PJ’s.


Oh my goodness, he’s grown so much already.  Where has the time gone?!

This year, we’re continuing the PJ giving tradition and expanding a bit.  Each year, my kids will get a pair of PJ’s, a Christmas movie to watch as a family, and a new The Night Before Christmas book.


I think starting next year (when my little guy is even more aware of what’s going on) this gift may be from his Elf on the Shelf. :)

What are your Christmas Eve traditions?

Merry Christmas!

  1. Traditions are what you always remember. We always got new PJs on Christmas Eve too!

  2. We do the PJ tradition too! This year LC is getting an Angry Birds pj set and is going to flip out!

  3. We always get the kids new PJs for Easter. On Christmas Eve they get to open one gift from a brother or sister. That way the one giving gets as excited as the one getting.:)

  4. I LOVE this idea! Now I need to run to the store and grab a few things…

  5. My oldest (2 1/2) is finally starting to understand Christmas too, so exciting. This year my husband are starting a new tradition. One large box will contain a new pair of Christmas Pjs for each of us, hot chocolate, a Christmas movie, and a Christmas book. Our girls will open it together on Christmas eve and as we settle in before Santa comes we will enjoy our new gifts together.

    • Love your gift tradition! I actually want to make it more of a “family” gift as the years go by and just put everything in one big box! Merry Christmas :)

  6. Love your traditions!! We do the pjs and movie also but I love the book idea!!
    Jackson looks so little last year!! Adorable!

  7. We always do new pajamas for my boys on Christmas eve too – such a fun tradition!
